Let's discuss your requirements

Our experienced and highly trained operators can provide a complete range of groupage, part load and full load service with dedicated express transit and super-express options. The majority of services operate as timetabled, scheduled departures and in addition to the whole of Europe these extend to Russia, Central Asia, the Middle East, Turkey and North Africa.

Davies Turner is a freight and logistics supplier to some of the biggest names on the UK high street. In many cases goods are transported from origin in cartons, but where this is not possible we operate a Garment on Hangers service (GOH) using specially configured trailers. This service offers unrivalled protection for the product, ensuring that garments arrive in perfect condition.

Some of our more specialised services include intermodal, out of gauge and heavy lift options. Our intermodal freight consignments typically combine road and rail freight, benefitting from increased speed, lower CO2 emissions and more cost-effective pricing options. Among our other specialist services, our out of gauge solutions provide for goods which are wider, taller or longer than a traditional transport unit. Additionally, we offer a specialist heavy lift service which can transport items which exceed standard road weight limits.

Our advanced Freight Management Systems enable us to track and trace from origin through to final delivery as well as allowing timed collection and delivery options from a full range of destination services. We provide full in-house Customs services with External Temporary Storage Facilities (ETSF) at UK warehouses as well as strategic partnerships with regionally strong independent freight forwarders in order to make the process as efficient as possible.

This effective operational structure enables frequent departures with highly competitive transit times across our overland network to and from anywhere in the UK and Ireland, all controlled by freight professionals at a regional Hub in your area.
